Peace, Perfect Peace
In Eastern religions, people sit and meditate and try to find a calm center. The object is to think about the moment-and that's all. You train your mind to think only of what is at the moment. It's soothing and calm and gives one a sense of peace.
In the modern world, lives are so hectic and fast-paced. Can we, as citizens of the industrialized world, and as Christians, find that calm center? Can we go about our daily lives and maintian the calm? Can we train our minds to think godly thoughts and live in the moment, savoring every peaceful minute? Can we be content with this moment? Can we be in "meditation" while in motion?
Proverbs 14:30 says, "A heart at peace gives life to the body."
Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God."
What keeps us from finding the center and living the Christian life when things are hectic? How can we remind ourselves to just be in the moment? Will this help us to live a Christ-centered life?
